Oh The Cuteness!

11 Apr

Lila has upped the cuteness level lately. (I can say that, I’m her mom.) She has been doing the funniest things that crack Josh and I up. I want to hold on to these memories and never forget them.

-We will ask Lila for kisses and as we lean in to retrieve it from her she licks us instead of just kissing. That may sound gross but it is the cutest thing, her kisses are of the french variety. I’m not sure how she came up with that but I love it. I guess we are gonna have to correct her at some point but right now it warms my heart.

-She has started to dance, clap, bob her head and bounce whenever there is music on. We have been having little dance parties in the living room. She gets the biggest smile on her face and it is just natural for her to move. She likes to watch me do silly dances and entertain her while she is eating. It’s like dinner theatre, just very low budget πŸ™‚

-Sometimes if she isn’t super interested in her food, which isn’t often, she will drop some food off the highchair and the dogs come running. We have been trying to teach her not to do that and if she doesn’t want it that she doesn’t throw it in the floor. Last night I caught her mid toss and stopped her. I showed her that we put food in our mouths and demonstrated. Then, she put it in her mouth. I clapped excitedly and told her “good job!” She started clapping too. I was watching her from the kitchen while I was preparing more food. She would put the food in her mouth, clap for herself, take the food back out, then put it back in, and give herself another round of applause. I didn’t want her to see me laughing because I don’t want it to become a thing but I was in tears.

I love this age right now and I look forward to all the funny moments to come.

Our Weekend

26 Mar

We had a fun and productive weekend!

Lila broke in her new birthday toys.

On Saturday morning I was able to get my long run in. I feel much more ready for the race now. My time may not be all that great but I feel like I can finish. My friend Emily played with Lila while I was out for a run. They had lots of fun and Lila got to try out some new headgear. She may be a runner one day!

Lila also carved some time out of her busy schedule to cheese for the camera.

And chat loudly in her crib while I documented.

BUT, most importantly…Lila danced.

This made me smile for the rest of the day:)
